AGE Platform Europe is an empowered coalition of older people’s organisations. Together, we ensure older people are at the European table, and participate in the debates to an inclusive society.
Bringing together over 100 organisations of and for older people, AGE seeks to ensure that older people are actively involved in debates on ageing and have an impact on relevant policies contributing to inclusive society: “We are the experts of our own lives. Our community is extremely diverse, but our difference is our strength when we speak together. As self-advocates, we have the potential to contribute expertise, skills and experience that enrich our societies and make them more just, inclusive and prosperous.”
Our work focuses on a wide range of policy areas that impact on older and retired people. These include issues of anti-discrimination, employment, social protection, pension reforms, social inclusion, health and care, intergenerational solidarity, research, accessibility of public transport and of the build environment, or new technologies.
Are you passionate about equality, human rights, social justice, and European integration? Join our dynamic team and work together with AGE members to combat ageism, enhance human rights throughout life, promote healthy and active ageing, reduce inequalities and to enable everyone to live a full and dignified life.
